Brady Hoke to serve as interim head coach at Tennessee

  • Butch Jones fired by Tennessee

The Butch Jones era in Tennessee has apparently ended.

After Jones was sacked by UT early Sunday afternoon, a wave of Vols commitments in the class of 2018 announced they were backing away from their verbal pledges to the school. The Vols are 0-6 in SEC play after getting blown out by Missouri on Saturday, 50-17. After one season as defensive coordinator at Oregon, Hoke is in his first season as associate head coach/defensive line coach at Tennessee.

"An exhaustive search is underway for a person of the highest integrity and character with the skills and vision to propel Tennessee to championships", Currie said.

"I know Vol Nation will rally around this team and support our student-athletes as they complete the remainder of this season", Currie said in the statement.

Tennessee (4-6, 0-6) managed just 285 total yards. The Vols went winless in October and have dropped five of their last six games.

In accordance with Section 3.1.1 of the Agreement, the University will pay you liquidated damages in the amount of Eight Million Two Hundred Fifty Seven Thousand Five Hundred Eighty Dollars and Zero Cents ($8,257,580.00), subject to all applicable state and federal tax and withholding requirements. That included a 14-24 record against SEC competition.

Filming for 2015's "The Force Awakens" also took place in the United Kingdom , but at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. Longcross Studios sits along the M3 Highway in Surrey, England, and so does the iconic Millenium Falcon .

The Vols lost to LSU in that season's SEC Championship and beat Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl. He's put together three consecutive winning seasons and bowl game victories.

Tennessee, which opened the season ranked 25th, has lost its first six SEC games by an average margin of 21.2 points.

Jones' resume in Tennessee is more impressive than you might expect with the way the fans have run him out of town.

As we discussed this morning, The University of Tennessee is exercising its right to terminate your employment and your Employment Agreement, as amended by Amendment 1 fully executed on December 10, 2014 and Amendment 2 fully executed on December 15, 2015, (collectively, the "Agreement"), without cause pursuant to Article III, Section 3.1 of the Agreement.

No matter how things go from here this season, Hoke is not a serious candidate to be the permanent head coach at Tennessee. Hoke has a career coaching record of 78-70 between three jobs with Ball State, San Diego State and MI.

Jones' record against each SEC school during his tenure in Knoxville is as follows.
